Conference at UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO MISSISSAUGA - FALL 2019
Our world is at the tipping point. We have undermined the conditions for sustainable existence, with no choice but to pull ourselves from the brink. Sustainability is the core challenge of our era. No academic discipline, corporation, country, first nation, government, or organization can achieve sustainability alone. We all have a role to play in the path towards sustainability.
The key objective of this conference is to provide a platform that promotes the generation, integration, and application of holistic knowledge of sustainability that draws from traditional, transdisciplinary and emerging academic fields and disciplines, as well as from practices and actions. Other main objectives are:
to demonstrate to academic community that sustainability is not limited to few selected academic disciplines, but applies across all areas of research and study;
promote cross-fertilization of knowledge across stakeholders, including academics, business leaders, policymakers, Aboriginal leaders, community leaders, and other sustainability professionals; and
to provide an opportunity to the next generation of sustainability professionals and researchers to share their inquisitiveness, contributions, and leadership in sustainability.
Given these objectives, we look forward to contributions from all disciplines and stakeholders. We will love to have proposals that integrate across and include multiple disciplines and stakeholders, and theory, practice, and action.

Appeal for Environmental Literacy EIS + RTR = STEAM
When we think of STEAM, We think of robots and rockets and advances in medical technology …We think of brilliant young minds focused on substantial goals and tangible rewards. Our goals are less quantitative. We want to promote Ecology education. We want to show to students the rainforest of 1817 in brilliant color. We were inspired by the thought of students being wowed by Remember the Rainforest. http://remembertherainforest.com/shop2/rtr1/ebook/etchcoms/treasureebooknew.html
These images are a rare display of Earth History, a flash of our collective unconscious. Like gems they cast a light from the past. They teach without words. They illuminate the fate of the future. RTR is where Art crosses the path of Science.
As web designers for Remember the Rainforest, we’re reaching out to educators. Our interest in the rainforest was inspired by our daughter Amy, an Eco educator in the Amazon. Amy showed us images from the Martius-Spix expedition. Our Eco education program is based on that expedition.
RTR has made an unlikely alliance with Enterprise in Space. While developing knowledge and talent for life in Space, EIS strongly endorses the preservation, celebration and renewal of our Earth. We have joined forces with EIS Academy to produce Earth Science lessons K-12. RTR was approved by the British govt. for CurriculumOnLine, by the Da Vinci Science Center and by the National Wildlife Federation. http://remembertherainforest.com/shop2/rtr1/Lessons/lesson.html
EIS + RTR = STEAM Imagine what your Environmental Literacy program will ultimately look like. We believe every school needs such a program. Remember the Rainforest should be prominently featured as a centerpiece. Its extensive index features topics like oxygenation, plant formations and functions, wildlife habitats, and essays on Nature by the Father of Ecology, Karl von Martius, expedition leader. We’re picturing the awesome projects and reports that will be produced from the expedition index and the 10,000 downloadable images. http://remembertherainforest.com/shop2/rtr1/ebook/indexpaidfoldercopy/indexoctober.html
Make time for Remember the Rainforest. It is a Green Oasis and a meaningful reward for students of all ages any day of the week, anytime of year. Celebrate the Earth by studying images from the past !
